Ramadan, the Muslim Holy Month is soon coming to a close. And what a month it has been – record setting in fact. There have been more deaths and more casualties in 2017 than any Ramadan month prior. In fact, as Breitbart writes, that deaths have more than tripled that of 2016 and injuries have doubled. They have been kind enough to add a timeline, chronicling daily attacks from the start of Ramadan, and will update attacks daily until the close on June 24. I invite everyone to view it by clicking on the link above. It’s rather remarkable.
Then there is the singular event, which has attracted so much press attention, of the whack-job white guy in London who used a van to mow down several Muslims exited a Mosque. Of the incident, the Atlantic penned a piece entitled, “An Attack From the ISIS Playbook.”
They’re right about that. No doubt this dirtbag Darren Osborne got the idea of using a vehicle from the recent Islamist attacks. However, the liberal Atlantic added a subtitle to the piece which reads, “The London attack seems to fit with a pattern of growing attacks on Muslims—both in Europe and in the United States.”
They write that the attack by the white guy in London was “right out of the ISIS playbook,” for the following reasons. “The attacker was a man, apparently acting alone. He took as his weapon a simple van, ramming it into people in an attempt to kill them. And he obeyed the command from ISIS spokesman Abi al-Hassan al-Muhajer to strike civilian targets in the West during the holy month of Ramadan.”
